The Big Trip: day 3 (Feb 3rd)
Page to Canyon de Chelly (Chinle AZ) Tuesday
A L O N G drive today. We stayed in Page long enough to visit Blair’s Trading Post. Send a postcard off to the grand-boys. Then hit the road.
We drove south on the detoured Rt. 89 to Cameron. They have a gallery there that is like a museum with very fine representations of Navajo rugs in particular. Then back up to Tuba City and across the Hope Mesas. We have always enjoyed that route. Stopping at a few of the Hopi craftmen’s shops and trading posts along the way.
We got to Canyon de Chelly in time to make a quick tour of the South Rim.
Dinner in Chinle was bleak. Few options. We opted for the #1 yelp recommendation. They seated us (at the Junction) in a room with bunches of kids. The food was ok. Nothing to write home about for sure…
